About Me

Hi World!

I'M Geraldine ARATA

I am a “city girl” fourth generation San Franciscan whose passion is reflecting the human narrative and its myriad faces. My colorful and expressive works have brought to life the sizzle of New Orleans, the nobility of Native Americans, classic figurative and whimsical sea creatures. I was influenced to take brush to canvas by my artist mother who sadly, passed away when I was only 11. Still, our  connection as fellow artists has served as a continuing thread in my own artistic journey.My works are primarily in oils but as an avid lifelong learner, I embraces other media and my recent works demonstrate my  use of color with new materials including resins and foils

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on drawing and painting in oils from San Francisco State University and a Master of Fine Art from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where I studied with world renowned artists William Maughan, Zhaoming Wu, Warren Chang, Tomutsu Takishima, Mark Tennant, and Dean Larson. I have also studied privately with Morgan Weistling and Pamala Hawkes I am  an award-winning artist whose work has been represented in galleries from coast to coast, in San Francisco, New Orleans, Key West, Truckee, Reno, Sausalito, and Benicia. Among my many collectors is executive chef Andrea Froncillo, owner of Bobo’s Steakhouse of San Francisco, where more than ten of my colorful Carnival works can be enjoyed by patrons.


It's not hard to find inspiration. It's everywhere I look! I use my life experiences, travels, and exposure to the arts to be my guide.  


I am a classically trained artist in the manner of the Old World Masters. My medium of choice, for most of my career, has been oil on canvas. However I have always enjoyed the the expansive mediums of the crafting world. As of late , my new works are a marriage of both genres.

My Career highlights include owning my own Gallery in San Francisco, CA. and having Gallery representation across the country, including       New Orleans, Key West, Sausalito, and Reno.
